The wizard's staff is complete...

On June 14th I posted an entry about the process of creating a wizard's staff from scratch using a pine tree from near here... This is the completed piece. I decided to use a design with three faces on it that I liked. The carving itself is about eighteen inches in length, with the entire staff being just under six feet in height. It took a bit longer than I would have liked but I think the result was worth the wait...








The design for the wizard's staff was inspired in part on a carving I saw on a rolling pin, and by this work that I completed earlier in the year. This is a 12 inch basswood carving..

Very nice, like some of the stuff they have here in Lithuania. They do a lot of carving using pine trees.

Trifecta. Nice! Should get some good coin for that one.

You need to put some of your carvings on ebay.
